Rodgers & Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA has brought romance back to Broadway in swirls of pastel organza and tulle that float across the stage in graceful choreography. The classic elements of this story are still around – abused stepdaughter who finds her true love at the enchanted ball and of course those gorgeous glass slippers. But this version has been modernized to include a few life lessons along the glorious path to redemption. Characters are created to celebrate their differences and the lines between groups are blurred; kindness is touted as the higher road to reward; the well-being of humanity, as well as animals, of all kinds is revered; and there’s even a bit of forgiveness for evil stepmothers and stepsisters. Does it work? You bet! Audience members of all ages were captivated throughout the 2 ˝ hour production.

Make no mistake – this is a Big Broadway Production. The scenic design is both clever and innovative, and if William Ivey Long doesn’t win an award for his costume design, there is no justice. Watching the lovely Laura Osnes transform from Cinderella to a potential princess is worth the price of admission itself. Santino Fontana is the charming prince, and Peter Bartlett and Ann Harada are the scene-stealing comedic sidekick and stepsister. The rest of cast is on target to bring this classic to the stage. Suspend your reality and spend an evening of magic with CINDERELLA.
